Mean Girls at the Stable - The Making of a Mean Girl
15th Mar 2014   |   General   |   Saferaphus
When my daughter and I first met Jessica, she was quite a normal little horse crazy girl. Actually, horse crazy doesn't quite describe the enormity of her love for horses. So when she joined the Pony Club my daughter belonged to, ...

14th Mar 2014   |   Shows and Events   |   Uphill Climb
For almost three years I leased a mare named Queenie. Recently, Queenie and I competed at the Illinois State Junior Horse Show in a few different classes. Our first class was Hunter Horse Over Fences and it was not very pretty at ...
 
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 5
12th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
There were just two options - A second surgery to remove the plate that had been put in just eight months earlier, or... Putting Choc down. All at once, I was thrown back into a nightmare from which I had barely awoken. Had we rea ...
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 4
10th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
The next few weeks of her recovery were full of ups and downs. The wound would begin to heal, and then infection would set in again, and once more I’d have to wait, scared to death, while they tested to see if it was in the joint. ...
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 3
8th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
To me, putting Choc down was never an option. For a horse so full of life, and so eager and ready to take on her next challenge and fight to keep living, it would just be wrong to take away that chance. This, of course, left two o ...
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 2
6th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
When I got to Choc, she seemed relatively unscathed. There was barely a mark on her elbow, just one little cut, and yet she could barely put weight on it when she walked. The vet had been already, and said to monitor her for two d ...
The Impossible - The Story of Choc - Part 1
5th Mar 2014   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
So I promised that I would write an article if Choc ever recovered from her surgery, and two gruelling years later, here we are. It has been a bumpy road with a lot of twists and turns along the way, but in the end, looking back a ...
Dream Holidays on Horseback
4th Mar 2014   |   General   |   PonyBox
It seems like it's been winter for about ten years now. I'm trying to remember if I've stumbled through the back of a wardrobe and ended up in Narnia. Right now, a holiday on horseback in a warm place sounds just about right. I've ...

Care and Signs of an Aging Horse
25th Feb 2014   |   Care and Grooming   |   Saferaphus
I just realized that my horse is eighteen years old now! That means she's entering her senior years. Many regard fifteen as senior. Most horses don't know this however, and continue to preform with the vigor of a youngster. But in ...

Equestrian Sports Set To Make Comeback In Next Winter Olympics
21st Feb 2014   |   General   |   Saferaphus

15th Feb 2014   |   General   |   Saferaphus
I have several news feeds that I watch and one subject that consistently appears on the one I have set up for the search word 'pony' is 'My Little Pony'. I remember a My Little Pony toy my daughter had when she was little. It was ...
The Horses of Russia
14th Feb 2014   |   General   |   Saferaphus

What to Do If You Think a Horse is Starving
11th Feb 2014   |   Care and Grooming   |   Saferaphus
Have you ever driven past a field, noticed a horse and then had your stomach drop as you think, OMG, that horse is so skinny! I know I have. If there's only one horse in a group of otherwise healthy herd, there's probably not a lo ...
What Happens When A Horse Starves
9th Feb 2014   |   Care and Grooming   |   Saferaphus
It's hard to believe that in North America, where we enjoy some of the highest standards of living, that animals, including horses, starve to death. It's shocking when news stories report stables full of starving horses, and it ha ...

5th Feb 2014   |   General   |   Saferaphus

The minimum wage where I live has sat at $10.25 an hour for many years and recently, it's been raised to $11. For anyone who must try to live on a minimum wage, life can be a struggle. But imagine trying to live on $10 a day. In A ...
